GaN chargers, once a niche product, are being more and more common. While most are wall chargers, the Kovol Sprint Desktop Charger is designed to provide 120 Watts of power across QC 3.0 and PD 3.0 ports, straight on your Desktop for a convenient, centralized power delivery setup.

Nice review, but a little stiff at $100. Really like my 100w gan Utechsmart which goes for $50. Not sure what it is about the new gan devices, but they have some density!

Overall, big fan of these multiport desktop style chargers for every device as wall blocks just don't do it for me.

I was introduced to GaN through Choetech. I have a 100W dual port USBC GaN charger. I have been looking into a new dual port charger or tri-port and they're very expensive and I haven't seen one that meets my specific requirements. This looks good, but $100 is more than I'm willing to pay. I can wait till that dips by 50%.

I wonder why there's almost no slim GaN designs like the Anker 543. I mean how can we carry such a thick charger in the slim laptop bags we have?

The Anker 543 would be almost perfect as a 65W charger with 2x USB-C and 2x USB-A. Until you know figure it has a maximum output of 45W per port.

The only option I saw is from UGREEN 100W (2x USB-C 100W + USB-C 20W + USB-A 18W), which is also slightly thicker than the Anker (2-2.5cm vs 1.7cm), detachable power cable (perfect!!) and it comes almost the same price.
